Although poor perinatal conditions are still the main cause of infants' dying in the region, infections and diseases are the main killers of children under five.
According to UNICEF, the under-five mortality rates in most of the sub-Saharan countries appear to be less affected by household wealth than in other developing regions. This is in part explained by the high levels of absolute poverty still prevailing in these countries, which are translated into the lack of adequate and essential services at the household level, and lack of health infrastructure and basic resources. However, children born into the poorest 20 percent of the population are 1.7 times more likely to die before the age of five than the wealthiest 20 percent, with an excess under-five mortality rate of 80 deaths per thousand live births (181 vs. 100 respectively).
Seguro que no muchos saben que Etiopía fue el único país de África que se libró de un proceso de colonización. Este dato, a simple vista histórico, nos ofrece un nuevo prisma sobre el que enfocar nuestro viaje por este país único en el continente más desconocido.
Resulta curioso que este enclave sin salida al mar desde hace unos años –se independizó de ellos Eritrea en los 90– que cuente con atletas más famosos que sus monumentos cuando en realidad sus maravillas quizá la conviertan en la joya de África.

In order to reach the Guassa plateau from the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, you have to travel approx. 260 km. A paved and then ground road (approx. 80 km) leads to Tarmaver. It takes about 5 hours to travel there by car. Is it worth travelling for so long? Definitely yes!!! We will reach one of the most natural places untouched by civilization in the highlands of Ethiopia. The area, occupying approximately 100 square kilometres, is perfect for trekking. There, we can admire stunning views and meet endemic animals, including Gelada monkeys and Ethiopian wolves. In addition, there are beautiful birds - more than 100 species have been counted here, including Ankober Serin threatened with extinction, and predators with majestic Lammergeyer (vulture). The vegetation of the Afro-Alpine zone is also extremely interesting, e.g. great lobelia. It takes indeed half a day to reach to the Guassa plateau from Addis Ababa, but it is worth remembering about the fact that it takes two days to reach the Siemen Mountains offering similar attractions.
There is an interesting collection of the Ethiopian cultural relic at the National Museum in Warsaw capital of Poland. They were donated by Wojciech Korablewicz, a Polish doctor working in Ethiopia and an author of an interesting book, ”Sun in Ambach”, and professor Stanisław Chojnacki, a founder and a longtime curator of the IES Ethnographic Museum at the Addis Ababa University (there is a memory board at the museum which is dedicated to the professor).
